Minnesota poll: Kurt Bills, when all else fails blame the poll

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills campaign says a Star Tribune Minnesota Poll that shows incumbent Democrat Amy Klobuchar with a substantial lead in the race is biased, a charge that Star Tribune leaders dispute.

In a news release on Thursday, Bills campaign manager Mike Osskopp said the poll oversampled Democrats and said, "Don't forget, Amy's Dad was a columnist for the Star Tribune for 3 decades. It's no coincidence that they are pulling for Daddy's little girl." Later, Osskopp e-mailed a fundraising appeal to supporters that said "Daddy's newspaper needs to protect daddy's little girl."

and here is the killer:

More than 60 percent of those polled said they did not recognize Bills' name.

and he blames biased polling?

2. He's that guy whining because Walser is supporting Klobuchar

There were whining about that in the Trib as well. That has to drive them crazy. "I'm a Republican but Klobuchar has my vote"
